Lyssomaninae   ( Figure 3 View Figure 3 )

The genus Lyssomanes Hentz 1845   includes 94 named species, 13 from Ecuador ( WSC 2021). It is sister to the smaller genus Chinoscopus Simon 1901, comprised of 4 species, 2 from Ecuador. W. P. Maddison recently named a new genus with 1 species from Ecuador, Sumakuru Maddison 2016. Field identification of most species in this group is difficult, and a comprehensive revision of the entire subfamily is needed.
